If you are in a troubled relationship, seeking help is more effective than ignoring your problems or hoping they get better on their own. Whether your goal is to strengthen bonds and gain a better understanding of each other or to resolve under-lying tensions, couples counseling can move your relationship to a happier, more satisfying place. Some of the issues that I address in treatment include: communication problems, sexual difficulties, conflicts with child rearing or blended families, substance abuse, financial problems, anger, infidelity and divorce.

Different stages of life can cause stress in a relationship. The birth of a child, or a child leaving home, a parent moving in, or change in career are just a handful of examples of the types of life changing events that can stress any relationship, no matter how close you are or how long you've been together. I like to work with couples as they experience the changes taking place in and around their lives, and understand how the changes can impact their relationship.

In couples therapy couples learn to identify and stop the recurring patterns in the relationship that cause hurt, rejection, and feelings of abandonment. Once this occurs couples are safe enough to learn a new way to communicate without judgement or blaming. The ability to identify deeper more vulnerable needs and feelings leads to a sense of trust and a bond of secure connection. We all have baggage that can interfere with closeness until we can resolve what is necessary.

Some therapists may recommend to a particular couple that the partners engage first in individual therapy, separately, before engaging in couples work. If both partners are not able to maintain a certain level of insight, responsibility, and maturity in their communications, couples work will be ineffective. For relationship counseling to significantly help a relationship, each partner needs to have a commitment to the relationship, or, at least to the couples counseling for the time it continues. Each partner must be generally honest, self-aware, and interested in doing relationship work to have an optimal outcome. Some couples need therapy to help end a relationship in a healthy manner.

I help couples explore the possibility of re-launching their relationship toward one that is more emotionally and physically satisfying. Together, we look at limiting usage of familiar resentment and anger patterns. We discuss if it's possible to give amnesty to each other to transform the relationship into one that is grounded in friendship, where laughter & support exists. Many couples at some point become roommates where deep wounds exist due to loss of intimacy and possible infidelity. I help couples who have children together look at their co-parenting skills and explore ways to become a more "unified front" with their kids, this results in the family functioning together as a unit.
